Highly favored in many respects is Steuben County, and to her natural 
attractions, fertility of soil and beauty of 6cenery the zeal and energy of her 
pioneers have added mnoh. Pioneer life is well calculated to develop latent 
powers, and it is to be hoped that the sterling traits of character so prominent 
in many of Steuben's early settlers may gleam forth in the lives of their 
descendants, and that record of early trials and hardships undergone by them 
in reaching success, may stand as a bright page in their family histories. 
Prominent among the names of those who have developed and improved this 
county is that of William Ferrier. His grandfather, Andrew Ferrier, a native 
of Ireland, born in 1769, came with his parents, in early youth, to America, 
and settled in the State of Pennsylvania. Here he married Catherine Wil- 
loughby, and of this union were born twelve ohildren, David, the father of 
William, being one of the number. The family moved from Pennsylvania to 
Harrison County, Ohio, where David was married to Susan Hendricks, a 
native of Maryland. To them were born the following children : William, 
Mary, John, Andrew, David, Jacob and Martha. The grandparents of William 
Ferrier — Andrew and Catherine Ferrier — settled in York Township, Steuben 
County, Ind., in 1844, where his grandfather died soon after coming, his grand- 
mother removing to Williams County, Ohio, where she resided until death. 

The subject of this sketch was born in Harrison County, Ohio, May 24, 
1823 ; moved thence with his parents, in his eighth year, to Seneca County, 
in the same State, and located near where now stands the town of Fostoria. 
This region was then the far frontier, the only house there at that time being 
the humble abode of Charles Foster, father of Ohio's present Governor. After 
fc «* residence in that vicinity for about eight years, they removed to Williams 
Cou'r.ty, Ohio, and, in 1849, to Steuben County, Ind. Here, on his farm, one- 
half L,Tik east of where now is the village of Metz, he served as clerk in his 
father's; store. Having spent four years in this capacity, he purchased the 
stock oh hand and began for himself the life of a merchant. HiB marriage to 
Olive M. Thompson, daughter of Robert and Miriam Thompson, of Williams 

County, Ohio, took place March 14, 1860. 

Mrs. Ferrier was born in Warren, Trumbull Co., Ohio, March 20, 1831. 
In her girlhood a school teacher, she brought to this new home longings for 
educational advantages that the time and place could not satisfy, and with tht 
passing years came the firm resolve that those given unto her to love and cher- 
ish should have opportunities and privileges that early days could not furnish. 
Three children were born to them— Amanda, the wife of Dr. W. H. Waller, of 
Angola, William W. and Dora, the latter the wife of Stephen A. Powers, of 
Angola. David Ferrier, the father of William Ferrier, died in thiB county in 
June, 1864. His mother is still living ; she is in her eightieth year, is pos- 
sessed of good health and all her natural powers. 

Mr. Ferrier continued in the mercantile business until 1868, when he 
retired for one year, and, in 1869, commenced business again in partnership 
with his brother, Jacob Ferrier, at Metz. Soon after, having purchased his 
brother's interest, he carried on the business alone until the summer of 1872, 
when he permanently retired from this pursuit. Coming to Angola, in 1875, 
he has since been identified with her interests as a capitalist. He is a man of 
generosity, enterprise and public spirit, and has always given freely of his 
means to all religious interests. In 1861, he was instrumental in having built 
the United Brethren Church at Metz, giving largely for this purpose. Of this 
denomination, he and his entire family are members. As a business man, he 
has been known always as open and straightforward, resorting to no trickery 
or chicanery to bring about desired ends. Though never having many educa- 
tional advantages — being permitted to attend, in the primitive log schoolhouse, 
but about eighteen months of school — he has in many ways shown an interest 
in the cause of education. He is to-day a living illustration of what energy 
and patient perseverance can accomplish when backed by a rigid economy. 
His early history was indeed the short and simple annals cf the poor, and yet 
he has, during the passing years, by industry and economical habits, gathered 
around him many of the comforts of life.

Cornelius Van Horn, 

MV Sally Van Horn 


This old and respected citizen is a true representative of the sturdy Hol- 
land Dutch race, who have made, their mark in every clime, and done so much 
toward the development and progress of civilization throughout the world. 
His grandfather, James Van Horn, was a native of Holland, who, after his 
marriage, came to America and settled in New Jersey, where he and wife 
resided until death. Several of the Van Horn family came from Holland at 
the same time, one of whom became a gallant officer under Washington in the 
Revolutionary war. James Van Horn was the father of six children, his 
youngest child, James, being the one with whom we have to deal. He was 
born in New Jersey, where he grew up and married Elizabeth Hall, a native 
of that State, and soon after moved to Seneca County, N. Y., where his wife 
died. He was again married, and removed to Niagara County, of the same 
State, where he remained until death. 

The subject of this sketch was the son of James and Elizabeth Van Horn, 
nnd was born in New Jersey November 11, 1795, and remained with his father 
until he was twenty-nine years old- Having left New Jersey when but a year old, 
his youth was spent in Seneca and Niagara Counties, N.Y., and in the latter county 
he was married, January 12, 1825, to Eliza Jane Philips, daughter of Noah 
Philips, a native of New York. Mrs. Van Horn was born in Niagara County, 
N. Y., October 7, 1805, and had children, viz., Sally, Ann Maria, Caroline, 
Noah, Hannah E., Cornelius and Malissa— all dead but the eldest, Mrs. Sally 
Jones, of Scott Township. After his marriage he settled on a farm in Niagara 
County, where he remained nearly twelve years, when he came out to Indiana 
and entered 120 and bought 40 acres in Sec. 31, Fremont Township, Steuben 
County, and 160 acres in Jamestown Township. In the fall of 1836, he came 
with his family overland, to this county, arriving at his land in November of 
that year. He built a rude log cabin in the woods, close to where his residence 
now stands, in Sec. 31, Fremont Township, and thus began his pioneer life in 
Indiana. He had not been a year in the county until death visited his house- 
hold, and took from him his loving wife, she dying October 9, 1837. He was 
again married, November 3, 1841, to Hannah M. Getter, who was born in New 
York in September, 1815, and had four children by her marriage, viz., James 

Republican party, he enlisted in i 
attachment to its principles. He 
missed a 8tate or Presidential vol 

C, Eliza Teresa, and two died in infancy. Mrs. Van Horn died April 30, 
1847, and for ten years he mourned her loss, when he was marri^ii ;i?:nn, 
November 13, 1857, to Sally Purdy, daughter of Horace and Sally Purdy, 
natives of Vermont. Mrs. Van Horn was born in the Province of Quebec, 
Canada, June 8, 1815, and, in 1837, came with her parents to Michigan, and 
has since lived most of the time in Steuben County, Ind., and now, in his old 
age, she does what she can to make her husband comfortable and happy. 

When Mr. Van Horn came to Steuben County, he was in much better cir- 
cumstances than most of tha first settlers; still, he had to oontend with the 
many trials and hardships that all had to undergo, Elkhart, Ind., and Adrian, 
Mich., being the nearest market towns, and the uncivilized Indians their prin- 
cipal neighbors. In politios, he was a Whig, but, on the formation of the 
ad is still as firm as a rock in his 
irst vote in 1816, and has never 
3e was Justice of the Peace in his 
township three years, and, in 1838, built a steam saw-mill on his farm, which 
he operated Beveral years. He has always been in favor of public improve- 
ments, and believes in educating the child thoroughly in the best public schools 
the county can support. He now owns 260 acres of land, free from debt, and 
has never had an acre of it mortgaged. He has owned much more than the 
amount given above, but disposed of it, as " old age crept on apace," and he 
found he had more than he could attend to properly. 

Mr. Van Horn is now in his eighty-fifth year, and stands as one of the few 
human landmarks who have seen Steuben County converted from a wilderness 
into a garden of fertility, and he can proudly and truthfully say that he has 
done his Bhare toward this wonderful growth and development. In his old age 
he still retains those vigorous and industrious habits that characterized him 
.through life, and is in the enjoyment of good health. He has never been con- 
nected with any church ; the Golden Rule has been his motto, and, in a long 
life of usefulness, his actions have always been tempered by moderation, sobri- 
ety, constancy, integrity, veracity, morality and patriotism. He will leave to 
his descendants a record that compels admiration of his worthy life, and that 
they can point to in these pages with just pride.
